Discussion: What Does It Mean To Live As An Artist

Recently Clara and I finished watching the Kdrama Flower Boy Next Door (ah! The Enrique feels!!!). The other night, while suffering from a random bout of insomnia, I went onto Tumblr and read through some of the meta written about the show. One interesting point that caught my attention: all of the main characters are [...]

A Study in Villains

A Study in Villains

There’s nothing like a good villain, eh? After all, the quality of a villain can make or break a story. Some villains are utterly forgettable, while others are more famous than their corresponding heroes. Just look at the MCU. Everyone knows who Loki is—but if someone were to bring up the Marvel Villain "Ivan," would [...]

A Grand YA Rant // Our Thoughts on Characterization & Diversity in YA Novels

It’s currently a rather rainy *bleh* sort of June day—and so the perfect time to do a blog post, obviously!

It’s pretty much common knowledge: Harry Potter is the chosen one and we all should love him and bring him gifts of awesomeness and Barnes and Noble gift cards, should we not? In a word, NO. Because for all his brilliance and sexiness (meh), Harry is rather overrated. The Potters in general are overrated, we [...]

Hermione’s Racial Identity Crisis

Hermione’s Racial Identity Crisis

I know, it's hilarous. Anyway, Hermione here, presenting a post in which my sister Clara and I argue a bit and then say some really deep things. And to avoid any and all possible confusion: my name is Hermione, but that's a different thing from the I-went-to-Hogwarts-J.K.-Rowling-Hermione, the Hermione who is suddenly having a racial [...]
